Friends of the LCI-713,

Our ship is looking pretty darn good, but there are several items that we still are in need of to finish up the job. If you know where we may find any of these items, please let us know or if you’d consider donating the item or cash equivalent to purcase, even better! Our purchase dollars are limited, but we try to buy if something of great desire comes available

Thank you all for you continued support of our group!

Rick Holmes, AFMM President

Berger-fairleads

WWII Berger Fairlead

Photo of a fairlead  found at http://www.hystarmarine.com/engine-gear2.html. The housing is a little different than the one on the LCI and I don't know its size. The type of fairlead we want is a "deck mounted balanced head fairlead" .  Which specific model was originally installed is still unknown. Berger is now known as Smith Berger and are still in Seattle.  There current inventory suggests that our fairlead would be the size of their current models MD 610 or MD 612.

Multi Purpose Signal Light Type "A" -- This is the one mentioned by Gordon (its honeycombed).  I, so far, have not found a reference to it in the records but, obviously, some LCIs had them.

Taffrail Log

Taffrail Log

This device was used to determine the ships speed. Anecdotal evidence indicates that LCIs had one. There are a number different makers but I think the Navy would have used ones by Lionel as they had contracts for other things with this company.
